This afternoon, Ambassador-Designate Bruce Heyman will be sworn in at the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C. The private ceremony provides an opportunity for friends and family to mark his transition to the new role and is closed to the press.

We expect Ambassador-Designate Heyman to present his letter of credence to the Governor General of Canada in the near future and the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General will announce details of the event and related media opportunities at a later date.
Traditionally, media interviews are not conducted until after letters of credence are presented to the Governor General. The U.S. Embassy Press Office is maintaining a list of media requests.
